A guilty, almost-campy horror delight with a most curious jazz score

Audience Reviews for The 4D Man

This movie is super cool, especially after seeing some really bad sci-fi movies, and in contrast to the other sci-fi movies of the fifties, this one is really spectacular. I loved it, the story is very different and new, I haven't seen many other movies like this, I highly recommend it if you like sci-fi.
